Have dove the Vandy with Southpoint and Captain's Corner. Can't get enough. So much to see. Watch your bottom time and you can get 2 good dives on her.

Amazing ship wreck to dive, only downside is that bottom time is capped at 17-20 minutes. Definitely would dive this again and again to explore more areas of the ship.

I dove the Vandenberg wreck twice on Wednesday, May 20, 2015. It was my first time diving it and I was a bit apprehensive having read many dive reports citing concerns about currents and visibility when diving it. Fortunately, we got lucky with the current...More
